Marduk - Serpent Sermon digi-CD
Serpent Sermon belongs in the same breath as other great modern black metal albums. It’s molded by contempt, bred with character, straightforward by principle, and catchy as hell. Marduk created a timeless album that treads familiar ground while doing a lot of interesting things with it. The bass is addicting, drums are on point, guitars are pristine, and the songs absorb you like a sponge. They ascended in triumphant fashion here and never really returned to this level of excellence since.
